# How to Do Percentage Calculations? (+FREE Worksheet!)

Want to find a percent of a number? You can calculate percentages in a few simple and easy steps.

## Step by step guide to solving percentage problems

• Percent is a ratio of a number and $$100$$. It always has the same denominator, $$100$$. The percent symbol is $$\%$$.
• Percent is another way to write decimals or fractions. For example:
$$40\%=0.40=\frac{40}{100}=\frac{2}{5}$$
• Use the following formula to find part, whole, or percent:
$$\color{blue}{part =\frac{percent}{100} \ × \ whole }$$

### Percentage Calculations – Example 1:

What is $$15\%$$ of $$50$$?

Solution:

Use the this formula: $$\color{ blue }{part =\frac{percent}{100} \ × \ whole }$$.
$$part$$ $$=\frac{15}{100} \ × \ 50 →$$ $$part$$ $$=\frac{15 \ × \ 50}{100}→$$ $$part$$ $$=\frac{75}{10}→$$ $$part$$ $$=7.5$$

### Percentage Calculations – Example 2:

What is $$30\%$$ of $$35$$?

Solution:

Use the this formula: $$\color{ blue }{part =\frac{percent}{100} \ × \ whole }$$.
$$part$$ $$=\frac{30}{100} \ × \ 35 →$$ $$part$$ $$=\frac{30 \ × \ 35}{100}→$$ $$part$$ $$=\frac{105}{10}→$$ $$part$$ $$=10.5$$

### Percentage Calculations – Example 3:

What is $$10\%$$ of $$45$$?

Solution:

Use the this formula: $$\color{ blue }{part =\frac{percent}{100} \ × \ whole }$$.
$$part$$ $$=\frac{10}{100}×45 →part$$$$=\frac{1}{10}×45$$→$$part$$ $$=\frac{45}{10}→$$ $$part$$ $$=4.5$$
